GOMACO GP-2600 Is A ‘Contractors Choice’


The GP-2600 slipform paver has been awarded Roads & Bridges magazine’s Gold Medal in the Concrete Paver category of their first annual Contractors’ Choice Awards. The GP-2600 took the Gold Medal over the Guntert & Zimmerman S850 Quadra paver, the Terex/CMI SF2204B HVW paver, and the Power Pavers SF-3000 paver.

“GOMACO has proven itself as a leader and innovator in the concrete construction industry by taking home the Gold Medal in the Concrete Paver category for Roads & Bridges magazine’s first annual Contractors’ Choice Awards.”

Roads & Bridges had asked manufacturers and service providers to nominate products to be eligible for the awards. An independent panel of judges selected the finalists, and contractors voted on the winners. A gold, silver and bronze award was presented in 21 different product categories, and the winners were highlighted in the July 2006 issue.

“Since February, hundreds of contractors have voted on their favorite products ranging from pavers to dozers. The Roads & Bridges Contractors’ Choice is a special award because it is based on use and preference rather than product release lead generation.”
